days to go, and we're focused on voter registration, getting our voters more educated, and then out to vote, and when you talk about all those polls, one poll up, one poll down, what i'm focused on is the polls opening, at least in pennsylvania and many other places across the country, on november 6th, because the only poll that matters is the poll on election day. polls open at 7:00 in philly, close at 8:00. that's what we're talking about. >> okay. let's take a look, president obama spoke to his hollywood backers last night at an l.a. fund-raiser. it sounded like he realized how bad things went. he wasn't as good as you were right now, mayor nutter, but let's take a look. >> everybody here is incredible professionals, such great friends, and they just perform flawlessly night after night. i can't always say the same. back in 2008 everybody always remembers the victory, but they don't always remember the bumps in the road. things always look good in retrospect, but in the middle of it we made all kinds of mistakes. we goofed up. i goofed up, but the american people carried us forwa
jobs. we cannot slow up on education because that's the engine that is going to give us the economic growth and competitiveness that we need. and we are not going to slow up on the whole idea of providing for affordable health care for americans, none of which when we get to talk about health care is as my, as the governor characterized, characterized. the bottom line here is that we are going to, in fact, eliminate those wasteful spending that exist in the budget right now. a number of things i don't have time because the light is blinking that i won't be able to mention, but one of which is the $100 billion tax dodge that, in fact, allows people to take their post office box offshore, avoid taxes. i call that unpatriotic. i call that unpatriotic. that's what i'm talking about. >> moderator: governor? palin: well, the nice thing about running with john mccain is i can assure you he doesn't tell one thing to one group and then turns around and tells something else to another group, including his plans that will make this bailout plan, this rescue plan even better. i want to go back t

social media activism supporting education for girls, something as simple as that. well, there's been condemnation of this attack and support for the teenager has been growing from washington to the united nations, around the world. reza sayya is joining us live from -- you have been all over this story talking to the doctors and the family medicine. how is she doing? what is the update? >> reporter: well, doctors say she's in critical condition. we've also spoken to the uncle within the past hour. he's saying that doctors are now hopeful, that she's out of danger, but the next 24 to 36 hours are going to be critical. this is the period after operation yesterday. of course, there's been an outpouring of emotion for this young girl. the last time we saw this kind of outpouring was probably 2007 when the former prime minister was assassinated, but now here we're talking about a 14-year-old girl. this is the kind of impact she's had on many here, and probably the impact has been strongest in pakistan's lass rooms. >> and you visited actually the school islamabad there today. tell us abou
are as opposed to what they are called technically. i really wish we had a catchy term for tax-exempt educational group. via things like like semi-super pac or something that would allow us to shorthanded. it would probably help a lot in the educational aspect. for readers. >> they get five o. one c. four and were out of here. editors don't want to see. >> the acronym would be excited. >> so what i see as we are entering a universe, where brad probably thinks this is positive, where more money is flying outside of party institutions, outside of candidates. more of a controlled by constellations of political operatives and donors with ties to different candidates. and that is where i see us going. i think it is a consultant strain. i mean, it is like a gold mine for political consultants. you can make so much money you don't have to answer to candidates or candidates spouses or travel anywhere. they just sit in a control room in alexandria, cut ads, collect checks, read polls. it's a great job and it is the future of politics. >> so we have a whole bunch of questions here and also people on twitte

more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> we're back talking about next tuesday's debate. obama versus romney, round two. who shows up, and what are the attack strategies? if president obama has called former president clinton the explainer in chief, it seems like clinton, who was campaigning in las vegas this week, gave a preview of how the campaign is going after romney now. watch. >> i had a different reaction to that first debate than a lot of people did. i mean, i saw -- i thought, wow. here's old moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i missed you all these last two years. to just show up with a sunny face and say, i didn't say all that stuff i said the last two years. i don't have that tax plan i had for the last two years. are you going to believe me or your lying eyes here? come on. what? >> that last line alone is worth playing the whole clip. governor mcdonnell, the charge is romney is in a position to say anything he has to close the deal. >> that's nonsense. bill clinton said at the convention nobo
>>> governor romney i genuinely believe cares about education but when tells a student that you should borrow money from your parents to go to college, you know, that indicates the degree to which there may not be as much of a focus on the fact that folks like myself, folks like michelle, kids probably who attend university of denver just don't have is that option. >> mr. president, enentitled as the president to your airplane and your own house. i don't have any plans to cut education funding. grants that people go to college i'm continuing on planning to grow so i'm not planning on making changes there. >> it was a deeply divided nation or at least it was unless last night that brought all americans in agreement. there is no red america or blue america there is only the america that can't believe how bad this guy did in the debates. >> geraldo: a fox news alert. i'm geraldo rivera reporting that in the wake of mitt romney's undeniable triumph in wednesday's presidential debate there is conflicting evidence on whether the republican challenger continues to enjoy a post debate
that can pass through metal detectors. he voted against the department of education. he voted against funding for meals on wheels for seniors. he voted against a holiday for martin luther king. he voted against a resolution calling for the release of nelson mandela in south africa. it's amazing to hear him criticize my record or john kerry's . >> his record speaks for itself and it's not very distinguished. host: we are talking about vice- presidential debates with tonight's debate in danville, ky. what matters? and you saw a moment from 2004 and from our archives. if your interested in watching that and other moments, c- span.org. professor, tonight when viewers are watching the split screen of the debate and they see vice president joe biden and a younger paul ryan, what will the impact been? in the shot from 2004, you get the split screen dynamic, but tonight people will get that. calguest: the split screen is very significant in terms of the debate. when obama and running scared off, the split screen did a lot of damage to obama. it was not necessarily what obama said, but what pe
in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. >>> yesterday, the state department began the process of coming clean about what occurred in benghazi. contrary to early assertions by the administration, let's understand. there was no protest. and cameras reveal that and the state department, the fbi and others have that video. >> however, the chairman claims we are pursuing this investigation on a quote bipartisan basis, that has simply not been the case. chairman withheld documents provided to the committee which is in violation of the house rules. >> struggled to obtain additional personnel but was never able to obtain the numbers he felt comfortable with. >> this afternoon, serious questions of security of personnel raised. former head of the u.s. military team in libya testified before the house oversight committee that even before the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans they never had the forces needed. comes a day after the state department said they never concluded it was triggered by the youtube
made many years ago. you get lower tax rates. your take home pay for education, for your work, for your home, for your mortgage, that really matters. i hope, and i'm going to ask you, will ryan follow in romney's footsteps, because i thought for the very first time romney really made that case last week, and it's helped him shoot up in the polls. >> oh, i think he l.as you know, paul ryan worked for jack kemp at empower america. he worked for castin who is one of the original supply-siders. he gets this stuff in the very heart of his being, and it's an important story to tell that in fact, if you look at the price of gasoline. obama has failed. if you look at the unemployment rate, obama has failed. the answer is not austerity. the answer is growth. if you have growth, can you mop up a lot of your problems, be prudent about spending, get back to a balanced budget which has only occurred in your lifetime because of a republican congress. >> last one, we're kind of short of time, but if biden starts crowing about his alleged foreign policy experience and knowledge and wisdom, shouldn't ry
. children to educate, a middle class to rebuild. but the last thing we should do is turn back now. >> and yet here "the washington post" just this morning has this editorial and the headline is, show me a policy. mr. obama has yet to say how he would solve the immense problems awaiting the next president immediately after election. until and unless he does, the only rationale he can offer voters is the urgency of stopping the other guy. that is a challenge for him, isn't it? >> i think it's a challenge. i think the president has to step up. i think of the first muhammad ali fight in 1971. people thought he would beat joe frasier. he got hit in the jaw in the 15th, but he won the second and the third. history remembers the winners. what we know about mitt romney is we said on this program three weeks ago everybody thought that mitt romney was done. he had a very strong debate performance. but it took the stench of defeat to free him from the far right of the republican party. he got to move away because he was in such a desperate position that he got to say whatever he wanted to sa
it says is it's a matter of priorities. who stands with the priorities that education, young people, all that. so that's why they're using it in that way. and i think that will play into the debate tonight just the way andrea was talking about because when you get to medicare, i think that biden has a clearly different point of view. when you get to spending, when you get to taxes. i think that's what big bird was about in terms of that ad saying to especially women, look at the priorities of the republicans -- >> women don't sit at home at night worrying about big bird. i'm telling you right now. i was not up thinking about big bird. i can assure you of that. the fact they're talking about big bird makes them look very, very unserious. and no offense to my five-year-old nephew, but he is talk being big bird. mitt romney is a bully, it's just so fifth grade. we knew that obama lacked maturity before. now we know for sure that his campaign does. >> steve: all right. >> i'm glad you're not worried about that. >> steve: "the five" is stuff a popular show. thank you for joining us live. >> h

that he would go along with it which includes turning medicare into a voucher program, cuts in education, cuts across the board. if ryan is going to run away from that, i think he's going to have a hard time. joe biden understands these policies. i think he's going to confront ryan with the truth of his policies, with the truth of romney record. that's what not just the democratic party is looking for but the nation is looking for. >> thank you both for your time this evening. >> thank you. >>> coming up, about that debate, president obama says he just had a bad night. more on what the president is saying and what he's planning for round two. don't miss it. >>> and affirmative action heads to the supreme court. and i was inside as the drama played out. stay with us. you know, i was once used for small jobs. yeah, and i took on all the bigger, tougher ones. but now that mr. clean's got this new select-a-size magic eraser, i mean, he can take on any size job. look how easily he gets things cleaned. it's enough to make you cry. you, specifically. not me. i'm just happy we don't go near rex'
